There were hard times but there were miracles, too.

A collection of memories by Mr. Noritsugu Oda 12

The Oda Collection consists of over 1,400 types of chairs, over 125 types of tables and cabinets, over 3,500 pieces of ceramics, about 1,500 pieces of cutlery, and tens of thousands of research materials such as drawings, documents, and photo libraries. But Mr. Noritsugu Oda who has been collecting it for more than 50 years, has rarely talked about the hardships, people involved, and episodes such as happenings. Here, Mr. Oda tells us the inside story of how the collection became what it is today.
